Not to be confused with Catholic.
Just, you know, catholic.
As in, Lutheran.
But we Lutherans get it even better. We get Mary and chapels and cemeteries. But we also get Christ crucified. We get His humanity. We get His divinity. we get His forgiveness and grace. We get His undeserved love, tenderness, comfort.
We get Christ for us.
“The empty tomb is not enough. What you need is the risen Body of Jesus the crucified. And it is the risen Body of Jesus the Crucified that the Lord provides.” – DHP
